Its a strong sign that a build thread is good when youve put a novel about Vietnam War fighter pilots down to read it  ;D I cant wait to see this beautiful Porsche in its new colour!

Been a while updating this but that doesn't mean nothing has happened, almost nothing has happened.  ;D
Anyway, Engine is still progressing. Heads are finished now. New light weight valves, springs, retainers and keepers.
Valve seats all refaced and new cams ordered, ended up going for 993 super sport cams.
New 3.8L pistons and cylinders $$$.........needs must.
The body, after block sanding that and fixing the panel gaps as best I could I shipped that off to the painter, he did a couple more body repairs but said its a really clean straight body so that's good to hear.
The rolling shell is in high build primer now and they will continue to block sand it. Once its at the paint stage I'll get it back, strip the rest of the running gear out and paint the under body, wheel arches and front trunk area before handing it back for exterior paint..
Went round and round on colours and changed my mind several times but I think I'm there now......for now.....until I change my mind again...

A very exciting phase! This is one of my favourite colours at the moment (Pearl Effect Blue LZ5T) but Im sure youve got your own ideas!

I think the original colour in the opening shot looks very nice
